Do you like music? I recently started learning to play the piano. Actually, I learned how to play the piano about 20 years ago, but gave up and didn't play since then because it was difficult. I have always wanted to try again. Besides, I heard that it helps to prevent dementia!
Speaking of music, I also like traditional Japanese instruments. They were also depicted beautifully in kimonos.
Have you heard of Gagaku? It is the court music of Japan from the Heian period (794- 1185). It is composed of percussion, wind and stringed instruments.
"Biwa" is a four-stringed Japanese lute. It was used to tell narratives. I like it's lovely design. There are ancient Biwa of various beautiful designs gathered in Shosoin Treasure House in Todaiji teample. I recommend seeing them when you come to Nara!
